Which? Convo: News of disappointing sales for Motorola’s debut Android tablet, the Xoom, has sent the tech fraternity into a frenzy. Is this just a knee-jerk reaction, or evidence that the iPad is simply synonymous with tablets?
It's simple: Apple beat them to the punchline. Same with the MP3 player. Kids don't ask their parents 'Can I get an MP3 player'. They ask 'can I get an iPod.' With tablets, Apple got their first and they did it right. As far as I can tell every other tablet is trying to play catch-up. Kids won't be asking for a tablet, they will be asking for an iPad. I still wouldn't buy one.
